Problem getting Daily Quote Template to work on Mac

Things I have tried

I have a mix of Macs and Windows computers that I use Obsidian for. I should also mention that I have only been using Obsidian for about a month.
I have a template for my daily notes that creates some links and gets the daily quote.
Template looks like this:

<% tp.file.creation_date(“dddd Do MMMM YYYY”) %>

[[<% tp.date.now(“YYYY-MM-DD”, -1) %>|Previous Day]] <== [[~Daily Notes 2022| Daily Notes]] | [[~ My Homepage| Home]]==> [[<% tp.date.now(“YYYY-MM-DD”, 1) %>|Next Day]] >> #dailynote #personal

<% tp.web.daily_quote() %>

I am using Templater to retrieve the various date values (this is the only way I have been able to figure out how to do what I want to do.)

When I try to run the Templater template on a Windows PC, it works fine. When I try to run it on a Mac, I get the following error: “Template parsing error, aborting. Check console for more information”

Would appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.

Thanks.

What I’m trying to do

What does the console say as the error message?

To check for errors, first open the developer tools by pressing Ctrl-Shift-I on Windows/Linux or Cmd-Opt-I on macOS, and then go to the “Console” tab. If you want to save the error to a log file, you can right click on the error and choose “Save as…”.

The API used to provide the quotes is currently offline for me, I would guess that that is the problem.

I think I did this right :slight_smile:

This was the last entry in the console.
The one before that is:

So if I am reading the GET command properly, it is failing on api.quotable.io/random. What has me puzzled is the fact that it works on Windows, but not on Mac, on the same network.

It’s offline for a few hours now, I am guessing this is from previous tries/using a cached response.

@joethei Thanks for your help. I’ll try it again tomorrow and see if it resolved itself.
